Save the Date!

Do you remember the good old days when we had a churchwide picnic at WorldSong Camp in Cook Springs, Alabama? Great family fun, mountain climbing, kids playing on the inflatables, hiking, swimming, and really good fried chicken. We’re doing it again !!!
The date is Saturday, August 23rd from 11AM until 4PM, and the location is only 25 minutes from our church. Fried chicken, drinks, and paper goods will be provided. Bring your favorite sides and/or desserts to add to the meal. We begin eating right at 12Noon so get there with your special culinary concoction. After lunch you can play on the water slide, or watch the smaller kids on the moonwalk/ball pi combo, climb the mountain, hike, or sit around and enjoy each other. The large swimming pool, with lifeguards, will be open from 1 until 4PM. Bring your chair or just jump in!
Save the date! Make your plans to come for a great church family day!

Help Needed in Nursery

Do you love to work with babies, toddlers, and/or preschoolers?  Do you desire to serve young parents by providing them with more opportunities to worship?  If you answered "Yes" to these two questions, WE NEED YOU!  We are looking for several people to help care for our babies, toddlers, and preschoolers during the 11:00am Sunday morning service.  If you are willing to serve, please email Nate French or call him at 969-1236.
